Classic humus enriched with beetroot for a better understanding of your body

This dish both visualises data and enables its consumer to find out about the time that his/her body needs to digest and excrete the food.

The 8.8 metre line of humus represents the average length of a human intestine. Before eating the humus, each participant is provided with a plastic cup for collecting urine. The participant should write his/her name and the time of intake on the cup. When the urine turns reddish, the humus has been fully digested and the participant should note his/her personal time for digestion on the cup.
